NOT REALLY MISSING IN ACTION- 1979 ART GARDNER

Here’s a “not so missing” 1979 card for a guy I already created a “missing” 1978 card, former outfielder Art Gardner:


The 1978 card I created a while back for him was as an Astros player, for whom he played the first two of his short three-year career.
This card has him for the team he closed out his MLB career for, the San Francisco Giants, a team he suited up for just seven games during the 1978 season.
In those seven games, all pinch-hitting & running appearances, Gardner went 0-3 with two runs scored and a caught stealing.
Thus would wrap up Gardner’s time in the Majors, finishing up with a .162 batting average with 16 hits over 99 at-bats in 86 total games.
